Billionaire entrepreneur and engineer Elon Musk recently drew attention to scam bots emulated by famous people on Twitter to steal Ethereum (ETH) and other cryptocurrencies from their victims.
Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin responded to Musk’s tweet by suggesting on July 9 that Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey respond with action on this matter.
In his tweet, the world-famous founder of Tesla Motors and SpaceX referred to the crypto scammers. Although he incorrectly spelled Ethereum, Musk seemed quite impressed with the sophisticated Skillz for the cheater.
In February 2018, Elon Musk revealed that he has “literally zero cryptocurrencies”, apparently to warn his subscribers not to interact with the wrong “musk” on Twitter. The billionaire also noted that he had warned Dorsey several times without success on the problem.
Earlier this year, Cointelegraph reported on various fake emulation accounts on Twitter, which among others tried to imitate the founder of Litecoin (LTC) Charlie Lee and lure their victims with fake competitions with cryptocurrencies.
